You! The students of Southbridge High School — 
you must be out there somewhere! At times it seems 
that there isn't anybody out there doing anything. At 
times it seems that the spirit of Southbridge High has 
died. It is at times like these when you must realize 
that there is somebody out there! 

There's somebody scoring goals for the Pioneers, 
somebody writing articles for the yearbook, some- 
body getting involved in the Student Council, some- 
body contributing something to Southbridge High. 

Don't look too far — just take a minute and think. 
If you are out there — let someone else know about 
it and give something of yourself back to Southbridge 
High School for all that it has given to you. 

So, next time you hear someone asking, "Is there 
anybody out there?" don't be embarrassed to stand 
up and say, "I am."

The Musket? Since when has our book been called 
The Musket? Since when has our book had any name 
at all? Actually, our book has always had a name, it 
was just never carried out, so unfortunately, the 
yearbooks at Southbridge High have been nameless. 

This year's yearbook staff racked their brains try- 
ing to think of an appropriate name for the South- 
bridge High book. The search proved to be less than 
profitable — at least fifty choices of boring names 
that would be shelved away next year leaving the 
book without a name once again. 

Then, we found it! One of the staff members came 
forward with a 1963 Southbridge High yearbook. It 
was called "The Musket." At first we thought it 
sounded pretty boring, but under further scrutiniza- 
tion, we realized that we were dealing with a legacy. 

Twenty-five years ago, these words were etched 
in print. "We, the seniors of 1963, have selected 
"Musket" (as our name) and shall pass it on to all 
future senior classes at Southbridge High School. We 
believe that the Musket is a symbol of the leadership, 
the courage, and the forebearance of the Pioneers. 
We hope that by setting such high ideals for our- 
selves and for our fellow students we will be able to 
live them up together." 

Hence, the name of "The Musket" has been rein- 
carnated and shall once again represent the true 
spirit of Southbridge High.

"But mom, why can't I have a job? Ev- 
eryone else does!" This plaintive cry is not 
as common as one might think among the 
students at Southbridge High School. In a 
random sampling, it was revealed that 
seventy percent of high school students 
have jobs, with the majority satisfied in 
their present positions. 

Paying jobs provide students with an 
opportunity to purchase needed ameni- 
ties, although many deposit half of their 
earnings in a savings account for college or 
personal use. 

However, those students who do not 
have jobs are far from being inactive. A 
large amount of non-working students re- 
ported that they are far too busy with ath- 
letics, extracurricular activities, and the 
like to responsibly hold a job. 

Contrary to other views, high school 
students and jobs, unlike the proverbial oil 
and water, do mix.

Festive Fun at Fall Festival 

This September 1 1th through the 13th, 
the grounds of Notre Dame parish were 
stomped by the feet of approximately 
one-hundred fun-seeking SHS students. 
Why the big gathering? It was the week- 
end for the Fall Festival. Why so many 
people? Junior John Shaw quotes, "Noth- 
ing really happens in Southbridge and 
when something like this comes around, 
everyone makes it a point to go." 

The Fall Festival, an annual event put 
on by the parish of Notre Dame, is re- 
ferred to by most teens as the social event 
of the year. It is a place where teens come 
to meet their friends, chance their luck at 
a numbers game and stuff themselves with 
mouth-watering fried dough. This is the 

place where relationships begin and end 
for students at SHS. 

Students may attend a dance on Friday 
night or try their luck at winning a giant 
stuffed animal or even an extra ten dollars 
at the Chug-a-Lug booth. 

The Fall Festival also sets the stage for 
a variety of new experiences. Freshmen 
are welcomed into the high school scene 
with a touch of friendly initiation. Upper- 
classmen get together for a "night on the 
town." Former graduates return to remi- 
nisce with old high school buddies. 

Within three days, all of the excitement 
is gone but the memories of the festival 
never seem to disappear. 

Erin Montigny and Paul Girard clearly show that love "balloons" at the Fall Festival.

Fear Plagues 
the Blood Drive 

On Tuesday, October 5, 1987 students 
SHS selflessly donated 31 units of blood. 
This bi-annual blood drive was sponsored 
by SHS Student Council, under the coor- 
dinators Jennifer Ferron and Mandi 

The underwelming turnout was pla- 
gued by fearful students. When asked 
what the big scare was, students surpris- 
ingly responded: the needle, the nurse, 
and AIDS. Though pamphlets concerning 
the disease were passed out to all stu- 

dents, some still remained skeptical. 
Fainting was also of great concern. One 
student claimed she wouldn't give blood in 
fear of fainting after she did so at last 
year's blood drive. 

All in all the blood drive was a positive 
experience for all who took part, whether 
as donors or as supporters.

It's Only Pioneer Love? 

— "Hey here she comes, how do 1 look?" 

— "Fine, but do you even know her name?" 

— "No she's new around here, but it won't take me 
long before I do. Should I make my move?" 

— "Yeah go for it!" 

— "Hi, how are you? Do you need any help?" 

— "Urn, yes I was wondering if you could show me 
where M114 is?" 

— "Sure it's right this way." 

Not all relationships start out this way, but there is 
some point of breaking the ice between each other. 
"You've just got to be yourself," advises Erica Tor- 
tis. "Danny and I were comfortable with each other 
because we had been good friends. Don't try to act 
different because how can you have a relationship 
without honesty?" 

Why start a relationship without being honest? If 
you're interested, do something about it, don't sit 
back and wait. Sometimes while you are waiting to 
make your move, someone else beats you to it. Then 
afterwards if it doesn't work out, pick yourself up 
and start smiling at another girl!

Spirit! What is it? Is it being psyched up for a game? Is it 
coming up with a winning score? Is it being the loudest class at a 
rally? Is it defeating Bartlett at the Thanksgiving Day game? 
For the Pioneers, it is the role of the cheerleader to promote 
spirit. This takes a lot of time and dedication. 

Aside from having practice after school and planning rallies, 
every week the cheerleaders have to deck the halls and lockers 
with decorations. Streamers of red, white, and metallic blue 
adorn the halls of SHS. Posters with phrases such as "Eat 'em 
Alive" and "Scalp the Indians" hang along the lockers. The 
question is, are these efforts really worth it? Are they a source 
of moral or just a tradition to be carried on by all cheerleaders? 
Are they appreciated, or just taken for granted? 

Cheerleaders feel that their efforts are taken for granted, 
while players say they really do appreciate the time and effort 
put forth by the squad. Although this argument could be de- 
bated back and forth, most students would agree that it takes a 
certain type of person to dedicate all of the time necessary to

tines. Cheerleading is still not considered a sport by many. 
Regardless of how it is viewed, a cheerleader has to be just as 
dedicated as a football player, basketball player, or any other 
athlete. Perhaps it is harder, cheerleaders have to constantly 
keep a smile on their face. 

Gosk Hits 1,000 

On January 9, 1988 the SHS Varsity Basketball team was 
presented with a task — to beat the Auburn Dandies and clinch 
a lead in the Border Conference. With 31 seconds left in the 
second quarter, senior forward Christopher Gosk sunk a lay-up 
that sent the fans and team to their feet. Chris became the 
seventh player in Southbridge High history to enter the 1.000 
point club. 

Plagued by an opening game ankle injury which kept Chris 
off the court for three weeks, he made a remarkable comeback 
and once again was able to contribute to the Pioneer's cause. 
An outsider wouldn't have known that Gosk was approaching 
such a milestone in his playing career. He exhibited control and 
team cooperation just like it was any other game. Chris played 
a superb first half and eventually led the Pioneers to an 83-82 
victory over the Auburn Dandies.

the Days 



Welcome to Southbridge 
High School — a mixture of 
fantasy and reality, where new 
horrors greet you at every turn 
of the corridors — at least :: 

first week. You have en- 
tered a new dimension — a di- 
mension of light and sound, of 
new faces and new terrors, of 
achievements and failures, It is 
up to you to decide which is 
which. The choice lies ahead. 

November rolls around and 
along with it comes the Big 
Thanksgiving Day Football 
Game vs. Bartlett. Classes 
band together to coordinate 
their skit for the big rally. The 
night before the rally you gath- 
er up your friends and meet in 
the gym to paint posters and, 
in some cases, each other. You 
are introduced to the rally mas- 
cot, Miss Turkey. 


You are halfway there. Ju 
year is perhaps the most challeng- 
ing and certainly it keeps you on 
your toes. October presents you 
with the PSATs. You sign your- 
self up in the guidance office and 
dread the time when the test date 
will arrive. A few months after the 
test has passed, you gather to- 
gether with other test takers in 
the auditorium to hear the re- 

Spring has arrived. Your first 
Spring Day at SHS. As a sopho- 
more, most of you are too young 
to go to the prom. As a result, 
Spring Day is the major school 
activity for underclassmen. The 
day's events include numerous 
contests of physical agility and a 
scavenger hunt. A day in the sun 
is a welcome break from acade- 

Exams! Unbelievably hard, 
teachers in high school are so 
demanding. How can they ex- 
pect you to remember things 
you learned way back in Sep- 
tember? You cram and cram 
until the last exam is finally be- 
hind you. Half a year gone, half 
a year still ahead of you. This 
term you promise yourself to 
take notes so you won't have 
to study so hard for your finals. 

Sophomore year has ar- 
rived. You have actually sur- 
vived your first year at SHS. It 
seems like you have gone 
through a tremendous growth 
period over the past summer. 
No longer are you the low man 
on the totem pole. As wise 
fools you are not quite sure 
where you stand. Well, at least 
you know your way around 
school this year. 

Ordering a class ring is not a 
necessity, but many students 
choose to order this reminder of 
their high school years during 
their sophomore year. Represen- 
tatives from Josten's spend a few 
lunch periods in the cafeteria tak- 
ing orders from students. Within 
the next few years this ring will 
symbolize many memories to fe- 
male and male students alike. 

£.Z Mini Mag 


Now that you are a member of 
the elite upperclass at SHS, you 
are able to attend the prom in the 
Spring. There is one catch. As a 
junior class, it is your responsibil- 
ity to prepare for the prom and 
make all of the arrangements. 
The major part of the first semes- 
ter is spent looking at places and 
listening to bands with hopes of 
putting on the best prom ever! 

SATs! What an experience! 
Nothing else throughout your 
high school career can com- 
pare with the knots in your 
stomach on the morning of 
SATs. Three agonizing hours 
that hold the fate of your fu- 
ture. Nerves are on edge and 
for the first time you begin to 
realize that in two years time 
you will be out on your own. 
Soon the SATs will seem like a 
fond memory, as you ap- 
proach their devious counter- 
parts . . . Achievements. 



As your high school career 
comes to an end, a feeling of nos- 
talgia creeps over you. Most, of 
your friends are heading their 
separate ways next year. Every- 
one has a pretty good idea where 
they will be six months from 
Graduation Day. You have suc- 
ceeded in getting through SHS. 

Senior Activities become very 
important. For the first time you 
really feel like a class. You begin 
to appreciate the people you 
have taken for granted over the 
past three years. First there is the 
prom, a night when everyone 
dances and the sky is the limit. 
Next comes the Senior Banquet, 
a last hoorah for everyone to be 
together before Graduation Day. 

You look on in disbelief as 
one friend after another com- 
pletes the Driver's Education 
course and makes their way on 
to the road. Soon enough, you 
have your own license and 
within a few months you can't 
remember how you survived 
without it. Now, the only trick 
is finding a parking space with- 
in the vicinity of the school. 

Seniors at last! You thought the 
day would never come. You are on 
the home stretch and according to 
previous seniors, this is your year to 
coast through school with an abun- 
dance of gut courses. True? Not by 
far. There is always something to be 
done, always somewhere to go. 
Teachers seem to have little sympa- 
thy for severe cases of senioritis. 

Guidance sees you now more 
than ever. You are constantly be- 
ing faced with deadline after 
deadline. Applications to schools 
and scholarships have to be sent 
out on time. College campuses 
are frequently visited by students 
in search of the school for them. 
School sanctioned interviews are 
scheduled and fees are submitted.

Want The 
Best Of 

Graduation is a special time to thank loyal advisors like Ms. Sylvia Tashjian and Mr. 
John Parillo. 





Four years fly by like four weeks. It doesn't seem like high school has lasted long 
enough. Memories mesh together as graduation day approaches. Senior year is 
ultra-hectic. The fall brings final SATs, Achievements, college applications, schol- 
arships, and dreams of what the future holds in store. Where does the time go? 
There never seems to be enough time to get everything done. Somehow, you 

There are so many decisions to be 
made. These decisions are life-altering 
and the options are limitless. College 
. . . Junior College . . . Work . . . Trav- 
el ... It is up to you to decide what to 
do, what is right for you. Your future is 
up to you and it can sometimes be 
frightening to choose your own desti- 
ny. Many students are unsure of what 
they want to do, and for many it seems 
like time is ticking and deadlines have 
to be met. Is it possible to have it all? 

Seniors believe they can have it all! 
Ambition and determination are at an 
all time high and no goal seems out of 
reach. Success seems inevitable if you 
are confident in yourself and you are 
willing to work hard to attain your 
goals. Can Seniors have the best of ev- 
erything? . . . YES!

When considering the options for the future, students run through all of the possibilities. Perhaps Tony Osimo is considering (I to r) a career as a deli clerk, an oil tycoon, 
or even a priest?

Time of Our Lives 

If we win the Thanksgiving Day game, 
it's called the Victory Dance. If we lose, 
it's called the semi-formal. This year's 
semi-formal was centered on the theme 
song "I've Had The Time of My Life." 
The song definitely set the mood for the 
evening. The festive atmosphere seemed 
to make students forget the unfortunate 
outcome of the day's events. All students 
that attended, whether with a date, or 
stag, certainly had the time of their lives.

The dinnerbell rings — the students run 
down the chute and into the grazing area. 
They get comfortable with the other "live- 
stock" and wait in line for a trough full of 
feed. A few cattle rustlers try to force their 
way into the mainstream undetected to 
ensure that they will receive the first batch 
of feed. Watching over all of this are facul- 
ty wranglers, who are sure to lasso any 
stray calves making their way out of the 
feeding area in search of greener pas- 

Every member of the SHS herd knows 
that lunch is very rarely only a time to eat. 
Lunch is a time to socialize as well as a 
time to relax. In some cases, it is also a 
chance to get in a last minute glance at 
material for a test next period. 

When feeding time is over, the troughs 
carrying the remains of that delectable 
fodder are brought to the receiving area. 
Then the cattle rumble back through the 
chute. Another lunch has come to an end 
at the S.H.S. corral.

Finding Some Space 

"Oh, no, it's 7:53! I can't believe it's 
this late! At least I have a couple of min- 
utes before the late bell rings. I just hope 
that I can find a parking space." I am sure 
many of the S.H.S. students who own cars 
have been faced with this dilemma at one 
time or another. Finding a good parking 
place past 7:35 is virtually impossible, un- 
less you enjoy parking a quarter of a mile 

One would find that there are two dif- 
ferent categories that the S.H.S. parkers 
fall into. First we have the "Early Birds" 
who have established permanent parking 

spots that none would dare to park in. 
Then, we have the "Just-in-the-Knick-of- 
Timers." This group consists of the stu- 
dents who roll out of their beds at 7:30 and 
roll into their cars at 7:40. 

Unfortunately for most of us, we fall 
right in the middle. Sometimes we find a 
place right near the school and sometimes 
we're lucky if we get a place within a two 
mile radius. 

A word of warning to the underclass- 
men: Before you think about buying a car 
you'd better think about buying a parking

Everybody gets it, not everybody does 

it. Who likes to do homework, especially 
when you could be watching tv, talking on 
the phone, or out with your friends? No 
one likes to do it, but it is an aspect of high 
school life that every student must come 
to terms with. At times homework can 
seem monotonous and incredibly boring, 

and at other times it almost seems fun. 
Unfortunately, most of the time, home- 
work is neither. It just sits there waiting to 
be done. No one looks forward to seeing 
their books at home after being with them 
all day in school. 

Even those people who avoid home- 
work, have had bouts with "that impossi- 
ble algebra problem," "a killer biology 
lab," or cramming for a test the night be- 
fore. We've all done it. It's not how you do 
it, when you do it, or why you do it, it's that 
you do it.

Aaron Poirier attends his first Student Council blood drive as president. 




Junior Aaron Poirier has done something never before ac- 
complished at S.H.S. For the first time ever, the Southbridge 
High School Student Council is being presided by a junior. In 
the past, the president has always been a senior, but this year 
the council felt that it was time to change the tradition. 

They held officer elections. The ballots were counted. Aar- 
on Poirier prevailed as the victor for the office of president. 
Aaron's three years of experience surely helped him to seal 
the win. 

As President, Aaron has already attended many confer- 
ences and is now doing his best to unite all students into the 
great pride of S.H.S. 

He takes pride in his work and serves as an inspiration to all. 
He has certainly proven that nothing is impossible. 

Congratulations Aaron!

The Heat is On 

Deadlines are closing in. So much 
is happening so fast. Two years are 
behind you, and less than two are 
left. Junior year is the year in which 
you can make or break a successful 
high school career and your chances 
at the college of your choice. Deci- 
sions made now may very well have 
lasting effects. 

By now the mailboxes of most 
students have already started filling 
up with information on the many 
options available for continuing 
one's education. Such things as 
class rank, grade point averages, 

and SAT scores are constant re- 
minders that graduation is creeping 
closer and closer. Two years may 
seem like a long time, but as the 
year goes on you soon realize that 
this is just an illusion. 

In between studying for SAT's 
and looking over prospective col- 
leges it's often difficult to find time 
for schoolwork. However, grades in 
your junior year count for more than 
in any other. The heat is on, indeed. 
It's comforting though, knowing 
that all of your work will soon pay

There's something going around sophomore year and it's 
very contagious. What is it? Well, it's no other than Class Ring 
Fever. It is diagnosed as the condition of having extreme 
anxiety to show others that one has officially entered the high 
school scene. 

The fever begins in early October and continues throughout 
the school year. It is during this time many decisions must be 
made. What size should I get? What color stone do I want — 
the school color or my birthstone? What do I want as an 
emblem? Do I want a Josten's or an Artcarved? 

Although the fever is very tiring, once the ring is ordered, 
one begins to regain strength. The waiting process of six to 
eight weeks allows all to recuperate. 

With no further ado, the ring arrives. Miraculously, the 
fever is cured and all sophomores gather together to dazzle 
their gems.

Caught in the Middle 

Pat yourself on the back. You've com- 
pleted your first year of high school. You 
are now a sophomore. No longer a new 
experience, getting from class to class is 

, not a problem. Surroundings are familiar. 
Unlike freshman year when everything 

, was a new experience, sophomore year is 
anticlimactic. You're not the youngest 
anymore, but you're still not experienced 
enough to be considered an upperclass- 
man. You think you know what you're 
doing and where you're going, but things 
change as time goes on. 

So much work to be done. Sophomores 
find that classes are harder and teachers 
less forgiving as you move up. More is 
expected from you by everyone. A multi- 
tude of labs, reports, papers, and tests all 
seem to be due at the same time. There is 
a possibility that you may even have to do 
some of your work at home. Such abstract 
ideas as SAT's and college choices will 
soon become very real, but for now you 
can just take things day by day. You are 
just a sophomore.

Initiation, perhaps the greatest fear of any freshman enter- 
ing high school, has finally ended. For many generations, 
initiation has been practiced, but only as a way of having fun. 
Kissing a senior's ring or carrying a stack of trays at lunch were 
among the many duties a young freshman might be told to do. 

Unfortunately, the practice of initiation became more vio- 
lent over the past few years. It was so bad, state and school 
officials were forced to examine its practice. Any student 
caught provoking initiation could be fined as much as $500 or 
even be sentenced to a jail term. 

With these new laws, freshmen are not as worried to enter 
high school as in the past. Instead, they look forward to 
spending perhaps the best four years of their lives.

The Freshman Experience 

Freshman year can best be ex- 
pressed with a single word: Big. Big 
buildings, Big people, and Big 
changes are all around you. Times 
are changing and so are you. 

Lockers and classrooms line the 
walls of corridors which seem to 
stretch for miles. Dwarfed by the 
larger part of the student body, you 
rush about, not quite sure of where 
or why you're going. 

A traumatic experience? Defi- 
nitely, at least for the first few 
weeks. At times you feel as thought 

you're in a nightmare, not able to 

However, things do get better. As 
you progress through the year, it 
gets easier. You learn where you're 
going and are able to get there. 
What were once trying situations be- 
come the norm. Despite the occa- 
sional sneers and jeers from mem- 
bers of the upper-class, you realize 
that making the best of the next few 
years at S.H.S. won't be too diffi-

My inquiry is met at first with a disbe-

Desperately trying to follow the on-field

each other excitedly. After a few mo-

most important and inspiring moment of 
the match — the game winning goal! 

Not only did I miss the final goal, I had 
no idea that this victory was the Pioneers' 
ticket to the Districts. 

Districts Playoffs began with a 2-1 victo- 
ry over Tantasqua. We were unstoppable! 
Then reality set in. At the next game, 
Westboro defeated the Pioneers 2-1 in an 
agonizing match, resulting in elimination 
during the second round of the Districts. 

This loss notwithstanding, both teams

Pioneer cheerleaders — superficial, 
"air-headed?" Perhaps to the untrained 
eye of a lazy observer, but not to those 
who are familiar with the countless hours 
of practice dedicated to the flawless ex- 
ecution of split leaps, aerial cartwheels, 
and half-time formations. 

The ideal cheerleader is hard to find — 
she must be expressive, well-groomed, 
and have above average gymnastic abili- 
ties. However, while keeping these traits 
in mind, a cheerleader must also fare well 
academically. This requires an intense de- 
votion to her studies in the amount of time 
left after she has cheered at games, par- 
ticipated in rallies, and decorated the lock- 
ers of team members. 

Above all, a cheerleader, being forever 
visible in the vigilant eye of the student 
body, must strive to set a good example 
for students to follow, promoting Pioneer

Defeat After "15" 

Quarterback Harry Theodoss discusses the next 
play with Rico Giovanello. 

On November 7, 1987, pandemonium 
broke loose at McMahon Field as the Pio- 
neers of Southbridge were defeated by 
the Tantasqua Warriors by a score of 14- 
13. Southbridge had been the victor of this 
big game for the past fifteen years, but in 
1987, the tables turned, leaving the Pio- 
neers in defeat. 

As always, this game was pleasant for 
the parents of senior football players, 
cheerleaders, and band members. Con- 
tinuing with tradition, students presented 
their mothers a corsage and greeted their 
fathers with a warm hand shake. 

It was also on this day that greats such 
as Mr. Harry J. McMahon, Mr. Ted Far- 
land, Mr. Don Marino, and center for the 
famous Dallas Cowboys, Mr. John Fitzger-

SHS Football Hall of Fame.

something inborn, players can only reach 
their full potential under the leadership of 
a patient and knowledgeable coach. The

Jane Cormier, new Varsity Basketball coach, knew 
she had a young and inexperienced team, but felt the 
key would be continued improvement from game to 
game. The Pioneerettes, though not victorious, made 
valiant attempts, and were perceived as a strong op- 
ponent by many rival teams. 

The Pioneerettes received a setback well before the 
season started when junior Nicole Labarge injured her 
knee during the field hockey season. Nicole, who 
missed the last basketball season with a knee injury as 

well, was projected to be one 
of the teams strongest forces 
offensively and defensively. 

With such a young squad, 
they are spending much of 
their practice time working on 
fundamentals. Offensively, 
the girls are sparked by the 
spunk of junior Heidi Martin 
and sophomore Jessica Rapo. 
Defensively, they needed 
work, but the determination 
of Robyn Lebel and Jodi Le- 
bel inspired the girls to push 
themselves to work to their 
full potential. 

It was a learning season for 
the Junior Varsity squad, un- 
der the coaching of Debbie 
Deacon. Though the Pioneers 
lacked a winning record, the 
girls proved to have a positive 
attitude which gained them 
respect from their opponents.

Southbridge vs. Bartlett. Students, faculty, and

of these two rival teams. School spirit could be felt 
throughout the room. Posters were hung about the 
gym with such slogans as "Scalp the Indians!" and 
"Watch out Bartlett, you're on our turf now!" by mem-

facing Bartlett for the second time this season. The last 
match had resulted in a heartbreaking loss for the 
Pioneers as the game was ripped from their hands at 

the final buzzer. The Pioneers 
were hungry for a victory. 

An emotional charge 
sparked the players as they 
immediately dominated the 
game both offensively and de-

proved to be evenly matched 
as teams traded baskets. At 
half time Southbridge was 
ahead 37-32. 

A late Bartlett rally didn't

result was a 74-59 victory for

What's going on? It seems that there is 
always something going on at Southbridge 
High School. Whether it be a fund raiser, a 
rally, or some other activity designed to 
promote school spirit, there is an organiza- 
tional body that coordinates all of these 
programs that students often take for 
granted. That body is the Student Council. 
The main function of this group of elected 
students is to espouse school pride among 
all students. In addition to this role, mem- 
bers are also expected to take part in less 
exciting activities. It is the responsibility of 
Student Council to make morning an- 
nouncements, monitor class elections, and 
deliver lunches to the students in ISS. No, 
the job is not all glamour, but all students 
involved find it enriching and rewarding. 
So, if you have some spare time some 
afternoon, why not sit in on a Student 
Council meeting. Take a chance and be- 
come a student in action yourself.

Too Darn Hot!" 

The stage sizzles with excitement 
as the Crimson Classics commence 
their stage performance. Sparks fly 
between members of the SHS Show 
Choir as they perform their intro- 
ductory rendition of "Too Darn 
Hot!" for the audience. The annual 
Show Choir Christmas concert is 
held in the midst of the snow season, 
however, the stage radiates an unde- 
niable heat. Singers belt out a vari- 
ety of songs from show tunes to 
Christmas carols while performing 
intricately choreographed dance 
routines. Audience and performers 
alike revel in the excitement of the 
performance. All in all the evening is 
simply . . . too darn hot!

An Exchange Of 

Exchanges are common enough, just 
witness any major department store on 
December 26, as harried clerks dash 
through stockrooms fulfilling customers' 
orders for goods. 

Well, exchanging inanimate objects is 
one thing, but people? It may sound remi- 
niscent of an illegal black market, yet it 
occurs every year as members of foreign 
nations pack their bags and journey to 
Southbridge for a year of American life. 

This school year was heralded by the 
arrival of three new students, Lorenzo 
Agati from Italy, Anatoli Lambriandou 
from Germany, and Bertrand DeLombart 
from Belgium, along with returning Yugos- 
lavian Stavre Vesovski. 

Although for the first few days hushed 
voices announced their presence in hall- 
ways and classrooms, they were soon si- 
lenced when familiarity set in. After wel- 
coming these three foreigners and at- 
tempting to "Americanize" them, we 
realized that we had not only accom- 
plished a physical exchange of bodies, but 
an emotional one as well with the sharing 
of ideas, cultures, and most importantly,

The Proud Few 

Becoming a member of the National 
Honor Society is surely the high school 
version of the American Dream. Mem- 
bership has undeniably become associ- 
ated with academic success, hopefully 
insuring college-bound students with 
entrance into the university of their 

Now, as in past years, the most well- 
known requirement is the illustrious 
3.5 grade point average that must be 
maintained throughout a high school 

But has the Society merely become 
a glorified honor roll? One might be 
tempted to think so, but scholarship is 
not the only factor. In addition, aspir- 
ing juniors must show leadership, pos- 
sess a well-developed character, and 
dedicate themselves to the communi- 


If one is able to fulfill these require- 
ments, they are allowed to join the 
ranks of the privileged few, those who 
are now among the "nationally hon-

Junior Jubilee 

After a frenzied night of hectic prepara- 
tion, anxious anticipation rocked the gym 
as the annual Thanksgiving Rally began. 

Under the leadership of advisers Mr. 
Brooke Mitchell and Mrs. Diane Allard, 
the junior class disproved the "Seniors- 
always-win." mindset by obtaining the 
first place overall class spirit trophy after 
three, well-deserved wins in the skit, post- 
er, and yelling competitions. 

An added attraction at this year's rally 
was the crowning of a new Miss Turkey, as 
senior Craig Boisvert abdicated his crown 
to freshman Darryl Howe after a four-year 
reign. Darryl, serve your subjects well! 

Another surprising addition to this 
year's rally blew in like a cyclone — the 
faculty presented its own revised version 
of the classic children's story, The Won- 
derful Wizard of Oz. 

A munchkin-like mentality remained 
during the awards presentation. Each of 
the junior class's first place wins was punc- 
tuated by high-pitched giggles and 
screams. Nevertheless, after class rival- 
ries were set aside, school spirit remained 
in force, insuring a full-capacity crowd for 
the coming game against Bartlett High 
School on Thanksgiving Day.

Memorial 159 

In Memory of 
Michelle Lavallee 

Michelle, we miss you so much, 
We just don't understand. 
You gave yourself to everyone, 
And met all of our demands. 

Why was it you 
Who was taken away? 
Your memory will live on 
In our hearts, everyday. 

For everything we wanted to say 
But never got the chance, 
Will grow deeper in our hearts 
And our feelings will enhance. 

You touched every person; 
Respect, you always earned. 
You gave everything you had 
And asked nothing in return. 

You always had a smile 
To brighten up the day. 
May you be that happy now 
With God, that's what we pray. 

You left us unexpectedly. 
No one was prepared. 
We didn't get to say good-bye, 
Or tell you that we cared. 

We didn't say how great you were 
Or how happy you made us all. 
We didn't tell you we'd miss you 
Or that you were such a doll. 

Now, everything we hear or see, 

Or say, or think, or do 

Will remind us of our "Little 


Who everybody knew. 

There are so many things if we had 
some time 

We'd sit you down and tell you, 
But the most important thing of all 
Michelle . . . We love you!

Always Up To Par 

Last year's Border Conference champi- 
ons made a repeat performance with this 
year's golf season. Led by senior captain 
James Robida, the Pioneers were able to 
procure high standing in District competi- 
tion. It seems as though the future of 
Southbridge High golf is also promising. 
The 1988 season brought forth such new 
prospects as Aaron Berthiaume, Nick Gio- 
vanello, and Jonathon Osimo.

Batter Up! 

Led by Senior Tri-captains Todd Berry, 
Ed Galonek, and Harry Theodoss, and 
Coach Rick Silver, the Varsity Baseball 
team made a valiant attempt at a victori- 
ous season. Though their overall record 
was 5-11, they were not a team to be 
taken lightly. The J.V. Baseball team had 
a comparable season. With a record of 3-9 
overall, they just could not seem to over- 
come key opponents. Once again, this 
season will be regarded as a building year, 
and the experience gained will hopefully 
benefit next year's team.

Another Building Year 

This year's Pioneerettes unfortunately 
had a disappointing season. The Varsity 
team was faced with replacing a starting 
pitcher, catcher, short stop, and left field- 
er. It was the inexperience of the teams 
that led to their defeat. Though this year's 
season was not a success, the underclass- 
men on the Varsity and J.V. certainly 
gained valuable experience which will 
propel them on to many victorious future

There was magic in the air. Luxury 
automobiles and limousines strode up to 
the edifice of Mechanics Hall on the even- 
ing of May 27, 1988. This was the evening 
of the Southbridge High School prom. 
Couples walked the lavish stairwells of the 
halls to the ballroom where the evening's 
festivities were to be held. Music played 
while couples ate and danced the night 
away. It certainly was a night "You and I" 
will never forget.
